#Ad Introducing a new wonderful crossover where two unique particles are smashed together in the Large Hadron Collider of creativity thanks to @intelanz and the #IntelEvo based @hpaustralia laptop. (Link in bio for full video)

Stay tuned for the quantum fallout and potentially universe-ending consequences of the collaboration between Dylan O'Donnell from the Byron Bay Observatory and Rick Schneider from Polaris.

The Anti Beam - a small delay between sequential exposures almost as long as a full 180• rotation of the actual beam, looped so the lighthouse looks like it’s casting darkness instead of light 🙂 #byronbay #astrophotography #canonaustralia #canon6dmkII ...

Well that was a fun, collective, global lunacy last night wasn’t it? Here’s a still from the livestream I broadcast but without YouTube downscaling and compression. C11 / F7 / QHY247C #celestronrocks #astrophotography #byronbay #lunareclipse2021 ...

The Moon, like, right now. 2 panel mosaic with @celestronuniverse C11" EDH / F7 / 0.015s / 1960mm & @qhyccd_astropic qhy247C Colour CMOS ... 3 more sleeps until the lunar eclipse! #byronbay #astrophotography ...

First light with new Lunt 40mm solar scope .. first impressions are very positive 🙂 some minor issues but way better than the Coronado PST .. this is a composite dual exposure to show the flare / prominence activity. More details on YouTube soon hopefully 🙂 #astrophotography #solar #lunt #lunt40mm ...

Another HaGO natural palette photo just taken from the Byron Bae Observatory! NGC 6188's dense cloud hides an entire baby star cluster inside it where we detect large IR emissions. We only see a peek via small hole in the dark. 🔭 @celestronuniverse 11" EHD F7 & @qhyccd_astropic 268M (4.9 hours) #byronbay #astrophotography #celestron #qhyccd #byronbaes #hago ...

NGC3324.. Not my best image (OAG problems made it soft) *but* I tried a new palette idea - HaGO - which I describe in more detail in the video. Basically, true natural colour images from mostly narrowband data. It kinda worked! I’d be interested to know if others can try this palette from light polluted areas and see if it works.

Sex is cool, but have you ever seen the Milky Way from the observatory that you built in your Southern Hemisphere backyard? ~200 x 15s / F2.8 / ISO 1600 Canon 6D Mk II #byronbaes #byronbay #startrail #observatory #astrophotography #canonaustralia ...

My car is not dirty, that’s the Milky Way. 🌌 I reckon I can do this better but it’s not an easy shot with dew, moon, time, angles, LP etc. Will try later in season with core. 30s / f2.8 / iso 6400 Canon 6d Mk II #tesla #Astrophotography #byronbay #byronbaes #canonaustralia ...

Byron Bae influencer here with some fresh Insta drama! Omg I went out to the cape to shoot Carina (she’s sooo hot right now) and there was another photographer there doing the SAME THING. Omg awkwaarrrd. Seriously though .. this green is the Earth’s own ionised atmosphere and look at how the dark emu reflects over the ocean! Happy international dark sky week! 5 x 30s / f2.8 / iso 3200 Canon 6D mk II and Tokina 16-24mm lens. #byronbaes #byronbay #canonaustralia #canon6dmkii #darkemu #carina #instadrama ...

This diffraction spike is caused by an oily thumbprint on the iPhone camera lens. The sky is finally back but not before a fortnight of rain shorted out the observatory, plunging my entire house into darkness last night. Today is for drying, and electrical work. I’ll be back to influencing your space opinions soon. 🤦🏽‍♂️ 🔭#byronbaes #byronbay ...
